Xiuhtecuhtli's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not very flexible to use"

iCon iStage
In fact, I use only DAW mode via Mackie control method for Ableton Live:

track selection,
mute, solo these tracks
play / stop / loop / record

AC works by pages 8 tracks with feedback LEDs to activate or not the parameter in question, nice.

The rest is lousy because it is not programmable via the utility not terrible, so I am using not Effector mode (via MIDI Control Change 2 pads, one pushing up the value of a parameter assigned, the other by lowering the value = 2 controls column pads 24 assignable controls so that the changed value is displayed, rather original way by the backlight pads. Ultimately, it is less a potentiometer / encoder thus completely useless.

Drummer mode is not terrible either, ca sends Note On a priori intended to trigger sounds / samples genre but MPC pads are small and hard, so it's boring, so it's blah. I do not use it.

DJ mode, which I use occasionally to trigger clips in Ableton, wander through the columns and trigger scenes using the dial is nice but limited to 16 or 17 rows of clips / scenes so for this function, a better launchpad I think.

Ultimately reduced to a basic sequencer controller, it makes the priest a little expensive but it is portable and very strong (hard plastic, quite heavy)

I do not know if I remake this choice but I must say that even down to the use of only one quarter of its functions, I use it routinely for this function just: play / pause / loop / rec + selection 8 tracks by 8, mute, solo.

melodeast's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not too bad for the price"

iCon iStage
I use it for almost a year, I have not tried other models before.

robust: as explained mawou if a tractor rolls over, always try to connect after, it can work
launchpad at half price: dj mode is not bad at all. Remember to configure the beast midi in AND out, and you get a visual feedback of the clips in Ableton live reading (at least). For triggering clips live is quite frankly, with still some caveats: only two colors, red for the clips read and blue .... Everything else. 3 colors for me is a minimum, or at least when there are no clips in the box, no colors! But hey it's still good
functions performed: the drummer functions, effector and daw are not feasible. Drummer: given the sensitivity of the pads, as do rhythms mouse ..... Effector: I do not know how you control with, especially if it is to achieve automation, but good luck. But parcontre reflecting a little, There are way to recycle the unusable function, including volume control effects returns (as I have read)

Retraining in question could have been more relevant if the "imap" MIDI editing software offered more opportunities because ultimately, only assignments drummer mode can be adjusted .... Damage

So mawou same as if it cost 90 euros, I would have sent him to China to acquire a launchpad. And if I had to do ... I do not know.

I often say that snapped her in a control surface that is a shame. Better worth to buy good hardware with our modest savings. But in fact, the purpose of a control surface is to allow comfort while working. So good .... Left to be comfortable as being completely or not at all!

The program is really simple config, one little almost nothing parametrer
the firmware on the website builder does not even notice and is ridiculous
How do you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
NO ... but considering the price it should not hope to have a war machine
but do not buy more than 50 euros NEW
